Throughout that time period, I was consistently and repeatedly informed by the Ogden Housing Authority that there was no provision for filing a claim for the excessive damages that these tenant's had caused to their units.
Nevertheless, I made a habit of photographically documenting the excessive unit damages and routinely sent the Housing Authority copies of the photos along with a detail of the damages incurred.
As was my practice, upon evicting the 6th tenant, I provided the Housing Authority with copies of the photos and a detail of the damages incurred. But this time, I also included a copy of paragraph 32 of the tenant's lease which provides for filing an excessive damage claim, as well as a copy of the HUD Program Rule that also provides for the filing of an excessive damages claim, which I obtained from HUD's own website.
